New experimental tools for the characterization of highly overconsolidated clayey materials in unsaturated conditions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter presents some of the experimental facilities that have recently been developed at the EPFL Soil Mechanics Group. Three apparatuses operating in non-isothermal conditions are described in detail: a sorption bench for determining water retention curves, an oedometric cell for analyzing volumetric responses under high vertical loads, and a triaxial cell designed for extreme loading conditions.
